Higher Levels Of All Forms Of Vitamin E Protect Against Memory Disorders In Elderly

January 7, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
There are eight natural forms of vitamin E – from tocopherols to tocotrienols. All of them have antioxidant properties and all seem to play a role in memory processes, according to a Finnish study. Researchers in fact found that elderly people with higher levels of the various forms of vitamin E in their blood are less at risk for memory disorders. The eight-year study followed 140 people aged 65 or older who had no memory problems at the start. After eight years, those with higher total serum levels of γ-tocopherol, β-tocotrienol and total tocotrienols, suffered less from memory disorders.
